Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition & BOOMBOX

Are you as big of a fan as I am of Stanley Kubrick? If so, you cannot miss this TIFF exhibition!

From October 31, 2014 - January 25, 2015, TIFF will hold an exhibition showcasing the works of Stanley Kubrick. This exhibition will feature rare photos, original props, costumes, screenplays, production materials and cameras from his career. Included are the must see dresses belonging to the ghostly sisters from the Shining, and the "Starchild" from 2001: A Space Odyssey. This is definitely an exhibition Stanley Kubrick fans will not want to miss.  Please visit this link for more information.

If you want to one of the first to visit this exhibition, then you must attend the following event!

On October 30, 2014, TIFF will be holding its annual fundraising gala and this year the theme will be Stanley Kubrick's works! Attendees not only get to view the exhibition, but also have the chance to explore TIFF Bell Lightbox and gain access to Kubrick-themed activations (such as the silent-auction, and a special Eyes Wide Shut performance featuring male dancers from HiM male and female dancers from Everyone is an Artist). Tickets are $160 per person ($150 for TIFF members), and proceeds will go towards TIFF. Please visit here for more information.

I highly recommend attending this incredible gala. I was there 2 years ago for the James Bond exhibition and it was definitely one of the best parties in Toronto!

#stmSnippet: Designer Francis Bitonti

Architect and industrial/fashion designer Francis Bitonti has people talking. His custom made 3D printed couture gown for fashion icon Dita Von Tesse had heads turning. Francis continues to push the limits of design and the design process into the future as he launches his own luxury label. This talented designer believes designing for one target consumer is a thing of the past and wants to design in a way where he produces products that are universal and mirror the user's desire.
